All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by our company adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

How we protect your personal data

Wix ensures secure access to all transactional areas of its websites and apps using ‘https’ technology. Access to your personal data is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as payment card information) is secured by SSL encryption. You can tell whether a page is secure as 'https' will replace the 'http' at the front of the www.wessexfaculty.co.uk in your browser address window. A small locked padlock will also appear in the bottom bar of your browser window. Using an unsecured network in a public place can be risky as unauthorised people may try to intercept anything you're doing online. Only connect to secure wireless networks that you trust. Wix is developing the tools to allow the right to access and the right to be forgotten, which will meet GDPR requirements.
